So this last week has been crazy busy! Both my little angels have been sick with a little respiratory infection/cold and we have all suffered. Less sleep, way less time for all the household chores due to all the "mama pick me up"s, cuddles, clean ups from being sick, the list goes on and on. I'm honestly shocked I never got sick. I think I touched 2967 snotty tissues and got sneezed on at least 45 times. In the face y'all.
I think I'm still in shock from that over here...On top of all of that, the struggle has been extra real for me when it comes to dinners. Trying to muster up the energy to think of what to make for dinner, get things at the grocery store, and cook is tough when the kids are sick. I realized it would be the perfect time to have a meal kit delivery!
We tried Martha & Marley Spoon and loved it! First of all I was so excited to try it because well, it's Martha Stewart. I loved her growing up. My mom always watched her shows and I was always just as into them as my mom was. Definitely #teamMartha over here. Martha & Marley Spoon's meal kit delivery service offers 20 recipes to choose from. Yes. 20! I haven't seen that many from any other meal kit delivery service that's out there. You can even view them here without having to sign up at all!
Their meal kits are great for any individual, couple or family on any kind of diet. They have options like gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, low carb, kid friendly, low calorie, and more! They really have tried to cater to each and every need out there when it comes to meals, which I find really nice. You can switch it up too at any time. So you're covered if you find out your kid has a new allergy, Mom that's eating low carb is coming to help you one week with the kid's while your hubby is out of town, you want to ease off of the calories one week, etc. you've got options!
We got 3 meals in our box and they were all so delicious. We tried the Seared Steak with the Ranch Wedge, Shrimp Fajitas, and Teriyaki Chicken Lettuce Wraps. I was so impressed by the ingredients and how fresh they were! I only ever eat/buy wild caught seafood so that was really great to find out that the shrimp was USA wild caught for the fajitas. They were delicious! I love the lettuce wraps from P.F. Changs and honestly...these are better.
There is so much fun to be had when you cook together as a family, and these meal kits take the stress out of the planning and shopping part and allow you to have fun cooking together! Great for husbands that don't know how to cook too because they can help you easily and that's a great bonding time! It's so nice too to be able to try new things. There are so many different types of cuisines to introduce yourselves or your children to, and the best part -- you don't have to think these recipes up yourself! Saves time, which is something I definitely appreciate!
Their kits are affordable at $8.20-$12 per serving and the more meals ordered the less they are per serving. There are such advantages to doing meal kit deliveries too. It encourages you to cook instead of getting take out or drive thru for your family on a busy night, with it taking less than 40 mins to prep and cook these wholesome recipes! I love that. I really try to do as little drive through fast food that I can for my family and it really has helped our health and the girls moods/behaviors too! They're so much sweeter when they are eating fresh, wholesome meals!
I have loved cooking with Martha & Marley Spoon and definitely encourage you to try it with your family. I think you will be so thankful you did! Make sure to let me know which recipes you try and tag me in any Instagram stories or photos so that I can see and try them too! :)
